Re: List of Things Batman Returns got Right/Wrong
I think the movie deserves respect for being possibly the most subversive and macabre blockbuster ever made. Can you imagine seeing this movie during summertime playing next to your typical action fare? It's not surprising at all that there was a backlash and Burton was left behind by the studio.
You do not fear death.
You think this makes you strong. It makes you weak.
How can you move faster than possible,
fight longer than possible,
without the most powerful impulse of the spirit:
The fear of death.
